Ben Maller: “The chances Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, and RJ Barrett are all as good as advertised are next to zero. Of those three players who has the biggest bust potential?? I’m going to surprise you with my answer... The answer is ZION WILLIAMSON.”
Listen to Ben Maller explain why he thinks former Duke phenom Zion Williamson has the biggest bust potential among the top three picks in the NBA Draft alongside teammate RJ Barrett, and former Murray State point guard Ja Morant.
Zion became one of the most notorious amateur athletes in the history of North American sports with his prodigious athleticism, but Maller believes that can only get you so far in a modern NBA that has adopted a game that revolves around the three-point shot and more Euro-League style intangibles.
Check out the audio above as Maller has severe doubts to whether Zion can just out-athlete the competition against the best physical specimens in the sport.
